As I wrote before it is in my heart to do. As time goes by it keeps coming up more and more, it seems like I have a job to do.
Earlier during the Holidays a good friend of mine & I were having lunch together and the discussion came up about teaching again.
He said with all you have experienced and know, you should teach. I replied I know and I get the feeling that if I keep putting it off, something is going to happen to make it unavoidable anyway.
As we discussed it I said to him you know with all the work of coordinating for Sri Mukherjee it was not difficult to outline the objectives and then apply participation and watch it all play out, but if I do this it will be different than the traveling Guru.
I also explained you know when you teach people this stuff you are introducing them to life changing things that can very deeply effect their entire lives. I just don't know about taking on that kind of responsibility.
So many of the traveling teachers hold there 1 to 3 day engagements and mostly talk about their cultural biases and religion to further support heir own claims.
I being an American do not care for all of that, and all the different names are like water running down a ducks back with me. Yes the stories are entertaining but none of them really give one on one personal instruction.
Yes some of the Schools do give really good group instruction but it is not really personal. I even witnessed one traveling guru who had his older students going around instructing others.
It was shocking to see one of them teaching completely different, because of having had Kechari come to me the way it did the traveling Guru found me of more interest than most and while he was discussing instruction with me, he saw me look over at the one instructing incorrectly and knew what I was thinking, he said that one is too busy with fantasy, and hollered at him saying no, no not like that.
The other thing my friend and I discussed is when you teach this stuff if you are doing it right, then you need to really take some time to get to know who you are teaching so you can communicate effectively, this is also creating relationships with other people not just putting on shows, classes and then moving on.
